Track Name: Blood Red Real
...one, two, three, four, five, six, seven
all good girls go to heaven
Track Name: Montreal (Your Friends Won't Help You Now)
People of Montreal
Did you fall
Did you freeze
Did you break in the knees
Your friends won't help you now
Their body heat is
Depleted
From booze and too much love

So alone
With spaghetti and a song
About bad kids
Who would have guessed
Your friends won't help you now
Their body heat is
Depleted
From booze and too much love

Yeah, what a lovely winter
Let's seal the door and stay inside
Behind the smokescreen all your friends are having fun
Heavy metal singers and their girlfriends get it on
Track Name: Non-Refundable Deathwish
Blue steel, sweet penetration
Lock up, vaccination of this nation
Stand clear, the future's not yet here
You know the deal, the lady's here to steal

What's point? What's point?
Ain't everything just alright?
What's point? What's point?
Doesn't beer always taste fine?

Booze hounds, the pride of the empire
Moonshine, the residue of war crimes
Former child prodigies sing us a song
I used to like them, but that was long ago

What's point? What's point?
Ain't everything just alright?
What's point? What's point?
Doesn't beer still taste fine?

Whose drugs you take
Is whose side you're on
Nothing to do about it
The deal is done

Whose drugs you take
Is whose side you're on
It's non-refundable
The deal is done

Our body is the blessing
Our soul is the curse
Track Name: Identical Twins, Different License Plates
All the trucks going there and back
Clogging up the arteries
The tradition of loneliness
Space race's arrived at Earth

Flyover, triumph of mankind
Gone are the times of crossroads

Each of them knows the destination
And therefore they are
Identical twins, different license plates
Asphalt shows off its scars

Flyover, triumph of mankind
Gone are the times of crossroads

Ride high
Drink only when you have time
Peace of mind
Can you rely on your third eye
Track Name: Different Haircut, Different Century
Chances are we met
In a different haircut
In a different century
I've practiced my pick-up lines
They're so refined
And so unpredictable
I think your
great great great great great great
granddaughter ain't nearly as
beautiful as you

LOVE IS TIMELESS, BUT TIMELESS IS JUST ANOTHER WORD FOR UNDEAD...

(verse repeat)
(chorus repeat)

What will we do with our miraculous bodies?
Give them to our children, our fictional offspring?
Track Name: Unsafety Match
You light up like a match, you make a beautiful mess
You light up like a match, and I’m sitting waiting

Biding my time, in pursuit of a god, or a greater goal
Girl, I could use some of your hope
Track Name: Offshore Drilling Is The Shit
Spilt wine and offshore drilling make you a man
Tax papers, sons & daughters, the job that you land
I wanna drill it up, I wanna write it down, what does it say?
When the future's so uncertain, well, what's the plan?

If you can reach it, reach it, don't just stand around waiting for a miracle

Now it's just me and machinery
It's all gone, astroturf & my SUV
I've built a house, I've built a tomb, I'm so cool
When the time comes to go home, I will drill on, I will drill on

If you can reach it, reach it, don't just stand around waiting for a miracle

Can you give me silver, can you give me gold
Do you wanna see the secrets that I hold?
Sophisticated boom boom
Sophisticated boom boom
Can you give me silver, can you give me gold
Do you wanna see the secrets that I hold?
Track Name: It Stands Still
You thought you were living on the edge
But the edge was dull and you weren't even alive
Like the old gypsy in a cowboy hat
Who watched the river flow
But it stood still
Yeah it stood still
And we're not going anywhere, either

You thought it was love at first sight
But there was no love, plus you were blind
Like the old gypsy in a cowboy hat
Who watched the river flow
But it stands still
Yeah it stands still
And we're not going anywhere, either

You thought you were on top of things
And then you slept through the awakening
Like the old gypsy in a cowboy hat
Who watched the river flow
But it stands still
Yeah it stands still
And we're not going anywhere, either
